    Dear All,

    My name is Jay Slater and I am the senior commissioning editor at The History Press in Stroud, Gloucestershire. I specialise in aviation, military, history and transport titles, and if anyone has an idea that would make a great book, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I look forwards to hearing from you in due course.

    Very best wishes,

    Jay Slater

    S!

    The History Press is looking for writers, especially of WW2 aviation, may it be a memoir or a plane topic.

    Why not drop us a line?

    Scrap that! The History Press failed to support aviation as promised. Am now at Fonthill that is to be launched this spring. We will release the definitive books on the Mustang and Westland Whirlwing and many others. If interested in learning more, please drop me a line: j.slater (at) fonthillmedia.com

    Dear All,

    My name is Jay Slater and I am the publisher and commissioning editor at Fonthill Media, a new and highly exciting specialist book publisher based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK

    Previous to Fonthill, I was the commissioning editor at Games Workshop, Ian Allan Publishing and The History Press before being asked to join Fonthill. It is a decision that I have not regretted and we love the mission in publishing beautiful books in the UK and US. Also, a growing number writers from other specialist publishers are leaving them for us due to our high standards; excellent sales, marketing and distribution; professionalism and constant communication, generous finances; superb and unrivalled reproduction; a varied and very exciting publishing schedule; and a team that revel in the subject matter.

    If you should have a book idea or more, we would be most interested in hearing from you. If so, please send an e-mail to me at j.slater(at) fonthillmedia.com to move forwards.

    With very best wishes,

    Jay Slater

    Mr. Slater has been banned for 4 months for not following the rules around here. If he comes back and continues behaving like this, it will be permanent and all threads deleted.
